Name of creator
Croton Studio was a commercial photography firm located in New Westminster, BC and Burnaby, BC. It was the official municipal photographer for New Westminster, and had a variety of clients, including CKNW Radio, the Finning Tractor Company, and the Vancouver Sun Newspaper. Croton Studio was established by brothers Don F. and Roy M. LeBlanc. In 1947, Don LeBlanc and his wife Dorothy arrived in New Westminster and took up residence at 1011 Eighth Avenue. Croton Studio first appears in 1949, located at 911 Twelfth Street. One or both of the brothers were owners of the business at this time. Around 1960, the studio moved to 7155 Kingsway in Burnaby. By 1967, the business had been incorporated and the name changed to Croton Studios Ltd. Don LeBlanc was owner and had moved his residence to 116 East Sixth Avenue. In 1972, a Croton photographer, Bob Dibble, bought the business when Don LeBlanc retired. Dibble owned the business until his death in 1979.
